It’s because we have a pouch at the top of the stomach. A bit like the pouch that’s made with the band but different. Food goes into the pouch and filters through slowly (well, if it’s food that’s kind of solid). We don’t have a valve at the bottom of the stomach like normal people though. I seldome get blockages but do find I need to slow down with eating when I’m eating things like veg. Sloppy stuff e.g. shep pie goes down a treat and I also find bread does which isn’t the norm. I find if I have bread with food it slips down easier. Strange but true.

Hope that helps.
